I have spent all my adult life as an educator. After completing an undergraduate degree in Education: Secondary English, I worked for several years at the high school level, where I taught various literature courses and grammar. Most of these included some projects in writing. I was evaluated as a Level 3 teacher (the highest level). For the last half of my public K-12 career, I worked as a principal. During this time, I earned a doctorate in Educational Leadership, with an emphasis in Educational Technology. I also was fortunate enough to be recognized as Principal of the Year for the state of Tennessee one of those years.
I have been trained and have experience in educating adults. For the last twelve years, I have taught doctoral-level courses online for the University of Phoenix. My student ratings for the course just completed was an average of 9.833 out of a possible 10.
I now have three novels completed and available as Kindle eBook or print. They are in the Mystery, Suspense, and Thriller genre and are published under the author name C. K. Phillips. The books, which are a series, are: book 1: Comes the Awakening; Book 2: Echoes of Skeletons Past; and book 3: The Survival Initiative. At this time, all are rated as 5-Star on Amazon.
This is my first venture in non-school education. The evolution of the Internet has given us the opportunity to reach a world-wide audience and the ability to share our knowledge and experience to students who want to learn specific skills without being confined to formal programs of study. I intend to offer additional classes and, if the demand is there, a deeper version of some of the topics of this course. Go with me on this journey as we all become better learners through our interactions with each other.
